* MobilePhoneGames in the West were usually stereotyped as being cheap, [[ItsEasySoItSucks easy]], cashgrabs (if they're licenced), and heavily PayToWin thanks to many of them using a gacha format. ''VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes'', being an RPG more in line with mainstream ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' games, doesn't seem to have that stigma attached to it, and remains one of the West's most played games.

* As the AnimationAgeGhetto page explains, WesternAnimation was once an all-ages affair as complementary works to major movies, and this held true in the first decades of TV; this is why ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest'' aired in UsefulNotes/PrimeTime in their heyday. Then {{demographics}} emerged, animation studios largely became separate from movie studios, and the dark days of the Ghetto began. This lasted for [[TheSeventies two long]] [[TheEighties decades]] until ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' aired on Creator/{{FOX}}. Subsequent shows upped the ante, until you were sure you ''didn't'' want your kids to watch western animation, at least after sunset.
** While TV has seen some improvement, Western animated films still tend to be categorized as children's works, with a side of AllAnimationIsDisney. Very few "adult" Western animated films have been produced, and most of those are spin-offs of TV series. At least, that was the case before ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' became an unexpected success in 2016.
* While Creator/{{Disney}} usually [[TropeMaker built the market for animation]] (sound cartoons with ''WesternAnimation/SteamboatWillie'', feature-length animation with ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarves'', computer-animated feature films by distributing ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''), the [[UsefulNotes/TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation Disney Reinassance]] certainly broke many ghettos: animated movies were now huge moneymakers, critical darlings worthy of Best Picture nods, and with considerable star power in their voice acting.
* Cartoons aimed at female audiences [[GirlShowGhetto have nothing to offer male viewers]]... unless Creator/LaurenFaust was [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls involved]] [[WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends in their]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic production]].

* Creator/DisneyXD's animated offerings are mostly aimed at young boys, with one major exception: ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil''. Even ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' could count for all its worth, given its massive cult following of young women.
* ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' broke out of the Christian programming ghetto- it is one of the few ReligiousEdutainment shows sold in mainstream movie stores, and has proven funny and entertaining enough to be popular outside of Sunday Schools.

** ''Film/It2017'', an adaptation of one of Creator/StephenKing's [[Literature/{{It}} famous stories]] about an EldritchAbomination taking the form of a MonsterClown eating children and a small band of children who fight against the beast, was able to smash box office records in ''[[DumpMonths September]]'' thanks to a lot of hype, not much in the way of competition and excellent reviews calling the film one of the best adaptations of King's works ever. On top of that, it beat the records previously held by the aforementioned ''Exorcist'' by going on to become the highest grossing horror film ''ever''.

** 2017 gave us two big examples:
*** ''Film/GetOut'', a horror thriller by Creator/JordanPeele about [[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt a black man visiting his white in-laws]] house for the weekend and discovering a sinister conspiracy, was able to earn well over 240 million worldwide at the box office on a budget that was barely 5 million. It also earning top critical notices for its social commentary on PositiveDiscrimination, cultural appropriation, its endless foreshadowing and - unsurprisingly given who it's written by - its humor.
